New Delhi, Apr 25 (FN Bureau) Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday requested chief ministers of all the other states to help the national capital in overcoming its shortage of oxygen, saying that the severity of corona is such that all available resources are proving inadequate. ‘I am writing to all CMs requesting them to provide oxygen to Delhi if they have spare. Though Central govt is also helping us, the severity of corona is such that all available resources are proving inadequate,” Mr Kejriwal said in a tweet this evening.
In the letter, Mr Kejriwal wrote, ‘Delhi does not produce any oxygen. Due to the severe rise in corona cases in the last few days, many Delhi hospitals have run out of oxygen. Daily supplies of oxygen to Delhi are woefully short of our requirements.’ The Chief Minister added, ‘Central Government is also helping us a lot in this regard. However, the intensity of the spread is so severe that it is proving inadequate. Therefore, I would be grateful if you could provide us with any oxygen, along with tankers, from your state or any organization in your state. Kindly treat this as an SOS. I would be personally grateful for your support.’
